Maturity Model for PIDs - Is it too soon? A case study by the Australian ORCID Consortium

The Australian Research Community recognised the need for having a national approach to ORCID implementation in Australia and helped launch the Australian ORCID Consortium in 2016. Since its launch, the number of consortium members integrating with ORCID has increased steadily with 80% of members with at least one integration and a few with multiple system integrations. However, not all integrations are equal and even members who have the same vendor integration have implemented it differently. This makes it difficult for members to evaluate how well they have implemented ORCID at their institutions and have a unified approach towards maximising the benefits of their ORCID integrations.

To address this the consortium lead launched the ORCID Maturity Assessment survey where members could self-evaluate their ORCID integrations according to ORCID best practices and on completion of the survey receive a personalised report, tailored according to their answers. The report highlights areas they have done well, gaps for improvements and tips on how to maximise their benefits from their implementation.

We would like to discuss our methodology, present results from our maturity assessment survey and gather feedback from the PID community.. We would also like to have stimulated discussion about the feasibility of having a maturity model for different PIDs, so that organisations implementing them can better understand their implementation and also maximise their benefits. It would provide PID providers with a better understanding of how organisations with different PID maturity levels use PIDS and how they interconnect with each other.
